The space

116 year old notched Log Cabin in the middle of the Rainforest, 1 mile from Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. Can Be Damp!
There is a King Size Memory Foam Bed in the Master and a Queen in the Loft Bedroom and Cable TV in Living Room & Master Bedroom.
Full Bath Main Level and a "throne" and corner sink on upper level for middle of the night business. WARNING: If you want Modern, Don't Book This!!!
The kitchen is very well equipped, right down to a coffee bean grinder and a French Press as well as a regular coffee pot.
Gas stove, though oven does not work; therefore we have an oversized toaster oven big enough to roast a small chicken!
There is a wood burning stove. Wood is provided for your stay. The entire Village of Volcano gets their water by catchment tanks in each yard. As we are in the middle of a Rain Forest and these tanks are not hermetically sealed, and can't be, we therefore supply bottled water to insure good health for anything you may ingest, like water for making coffee, brushing teeth, steaming veggies and the like. Some may find this inconvenient but this is part village life in Volcano, and there is always plenty of bottled water at your service! This is a NO SMOKING Environment.

We are conscientious about water conservation due to the catch systems, but there is plenty in the tank to be able to shower and handle daily needs.
A few good restaurants nearby as well as a general store right across the road!
With a mile of the National Park, hiking opportunities R endless.
There are also a few wonderful art galleries, including Volcano Garden Arts which serves lunch at Cafe Ono and sit in the beautiful sculpture lined garden.
Minimum at Christmas is 10 days. TAT#W(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

We provide drinking water and want you to use it for anything you ingest as the water in the house lines are from a catch system.
If you are going to open a window, use the short screens that are provided on each floor of the Cabin. Sorry, no pets and no smoking inside the Log Cabin, outside OK
We do ask that if you make a fire, be sure the door to the wood stove is securely locked before heading up to bed. If you leave the door to the kitchen closed the Cabin gets very toasty!

This cabin is very conveniently located as a base to explore the National Park. Walking distance to restaurants in pittoresque Volcano. The cabin has a very interesting history and is perfect for those that want to stay in a non-typical, historic yet comfortable place. If the Ritz is your standard place to stay, this probabably isn't your best choice. Communication with the host Cynthia was very easy and she provided a phone tour to learn more about the cabin!

We had such a great stay in the log cabin! It is rustic, which is something that appeals to us! Our young adult sons were so happy to stay in a place like this, maybe because they only imagine this in a movie. They didn't want to leave.! The cabin is a perfect location in Volcano Village! Cynthia was kind and caring, and very prompt on responding to a concern of ours. Can't wait to go back!

This place is amazing on so many levels. The History is apparent the moment you set foot in the door. We were so glad it cooled down enough one morning that we needed to light a fire.. breakfast and coffee looking out at the mossy yard and lush green plants in the rain was wonderful. if you like the " real deal " this is it... people try to fake this kind of charm but always fall woefully short.

This is a large, rustic cabin with a lot of character! Our kids (ages 5 & 8) absolutely loved the secret back door, the cool staircase and the moss lawn. We all slept upstairs and we were very comfortable (8 year old in one room, 5 year old on the futon and their parents in the master bedroom). The listing is accurate - it is a great place for a family who enjoys a more rustic environment and a little adventure.

Everything we needed was available. Nearby LavaRock Cafe served a mean grass fed local burger. See volcano at night gate remains open when park closes. You can see dancing lava from lookout over Kilauea next to awesom Jagfar museum. Bring national park pass for free parking during day.

Cynthia's Log Cabin was the perfect "base camp" for our family of four. It was surprisingly well stocked and the location is superb. We are so glad we stayed here and not all the way in Kona. We wanted to explore the park, and we did for 3 full days. Volcano Villiage is a neat little village and the Thai restaurant is the real deal. This 1901 cabin has a great wood burning stove we used every night, and our kids loved the funky stairs and the layout of the cabin. The moss lawn is right out of a fairy tale. If/when we come back to Volcanoes Nat'l Park, we would stay here again for sure. Mahalo Cynthia for the stay. Aloha! The Sloss crew from CO.

We stayed in this quaint and ideally located cabin for a brief 2 night stay on our visit to Hawaii. Our communication with Cynthia to arrange the condo was wonderful. Here's a list of Pros and Cons in staying at this place. Pros : -Absolutely the best location for visiting Volcanoes national park. - Considering the size of the town, there are some excellent restaurant choices in the area. - The scenery in the area is outstanding and peaceful - The cabin is very spacious and ideal for hanging out. Cons : - If you are looking for some luxurious comfort, this is not the place for you. - It's located in a rain forest and the cabin runs on a dehumidifier which is only operated between guests. As a result, the place can feel a little damp particularly the bedding. - Bring big spray :) - Once we were checked in, we had very little communication with the host. We are used to recommendations regarding things to do and restaurants etc from previous AirbnB stays.

Response from Cynthia:
Hi Moe, So happy you enjoyed the house! Only a bit sad that you didn't find the restaurant and activity info by the phone as there is a bunch in the holder there. As for communicating, I try to not bother my guests, but do offer my contact so that they can reach me if they need anything. Had I known you wished contact, I would have been there for you in a heartbeat! As for the dampness, the house is in the middle of a rain forest and I alert each guest of that fact, as you know. Loved your comment that it's not for those looking for luxury as that is Totally True! Just the opposite, this is an old house (115 years old!) made of all Logs, Trees!!! That is the charm of the house, is that it is NOT a luxury suite. Thanks for letting that be known as it's best that future guests don't have expectations beyond just what it is.... A Very Old Log Cabin in the Forest... Charming. Aloha!

As it now has all of the modern conveniences we all love, it really is the Best of Both Worlds! TAT #W
